Residents Present at National Meeting Supported by The Rohrmann Endowment

Dr. Hoiwan Cheung and Dr. Janis Yee at STR Conference

"Thanks to funding from the Rohrmann Endowment, I attended the Society of Thoracic Radiology (STR) Annual Conference, which took place this past March. My educational exhibit on Complications of Percutaneous Structural Heart Interventions, which I co-authored with Dr. Jonathan Revels, Dr. Sarah Bastawrous, Dr. Sherry Wang and Dr. Shiamaa Fadl, received a Certificate of Merit award. I enjoyed meeting and connecting with residents across the country, and it was wonderful to attend a conference again in person.

I plan to incorporate the skills I learned from the Resident Bootcamp and the advice from the non-interpretative sessions in mentorship and leadership in my practice moving forward. Thank you again to the Rohrmann Endowment and UW Radiology for their continuous support of resident education and research." – Janis Yee, M.D., PGY-5 Diagnostic Radiology Resident

Dr. Hoiwan Cheung with Dr. Sudakhar Pipavath, UW Professor of Radiology and his wife, Naga Mude

"With the help of the Rohrmann Endowment, I was able to travel to Las Vegas to attend the Society of Thoracic Radiology (STR) conference. I presented an electronic educational exhibit of my work with Dr. Jonathan Revels, Dr. Sarah Bastawrous, and Dr. Shaimaa Fadl on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM): From the Expected Phenotypes to Less Known Variants, which received a Cum Laude award. The Resident Bootcamp session and workshops were incredibly enriching and educational. It was also wonderful to connect with UW faculty at the conference as well as domestic and international residents from other institutions. Thank you once again to the Rohrmann Endowment and UW Radiology for your generous support of our educational and scientific pursuits!"  – Hoiwan Cheung, MD, PGY-5 Diagnostic Radiology Resident

Rohrmann Endowment Funds ACR Radiology Leadership Courses for Residents

PGY-5 residents Tom Eggert, Shamus Moran, and Janis Yee recently participated in the ACR Radiology Leadership Institute’s (RLI) Milestone course, with their registration funded by the Rohrmann Endowment. The course extended from September to March and includes five blocks, all of which provide educational materials including an informative lecture, reading materials, and a coordinated activity that guides the residents through a hands-on task with accumulation of information and ideas, summarized in a short PowerPoint presentation and shared with the other groups through webinars. This allows our residents to learn about different practices and economic forces across our country. In addition to the RLI Milestones course, 12 Radiology residents participated in the ACR Leadership Essentials program.

“The ACR Leadership Essentials Program was an invaluable experience for me as a beginning radiologist. I was able to learn about a wide variety of topics that have laid the foundation for my career. I hope to build upon the skills I acquired through the program as I continue through residency. Learning from leaders across the country has given me insight into not only the current issues facing radiology, but also in healthcare and medicine in general. I am positive that my experience through this program will greatly enhance the relationships I have with my co-workers, attendings and patients.” – Andy Chang Guo, MD, PGY-2

“I am very grateful for the Rohrmann Endowment giving me the opportunity to participate in the ACR Leadership Essentials Program. I was exposed to and learned a diverse array of topics within the non-clinical side of radiology that I had not experienced during my residency training. The knowledge that I acquired will most definitely play a vital role in my future career and overall make me a more well-rounded radiologist. Thank you all for those generous donors that support us residents to continue to improve ourselves!” – Andrew Kim, MD, PGY-5

These programs serve to enrich the experience of UW Radiology residents, providing much-needed leadership training and incorporating non-interpretive skills – laying the groundwork for successful careers for our trainees.

UW Radiology Residents First-Author Article featured on March 2022 RadioGraphics cover!

UW residents Lisa Johnson and Shamus Moran, with mentorship from past and present UW faculty including Drs. Puneet Bhargava, Jonathan Revels, Mariam Moshiri, Charles Rohrmann, and Bahar Mansoori, recently published Fluoroscopic Evaluation of Duodenal Diseases in RadioGraphics. Not only was their article published in RadioGraphics, but imaging from their manuscript was featured on the front cover of the March-April 2022 print edition.

Corresponding author Dr. Mansoori (pictured left) had a unique opportunity to tour the RadioGraphics office in March and meet with the editor, Dr. Cooky Menias, during the Society of
Abdominal Radiology’s annual meeting in Scottsdale. Lisa and Shamus are grateful to have worked alongside such a fantastic team of mentors, with special acknowledgement of Dr. Mansoori for her enduring support and dedication to this project.

The journey from an RSNA educational exhibit to a RadioGraphics publication has been an invaluable learning experience.
